Just thinking, when I read the posts here, it's clear about the passion for gardening. However, before I was 20, say, I had no interest whatsoever in plants or anything remotely to do with gardening......oh, except for garden peas . I used to pinch loads from the school veg garden....took so many the headmaster called for the pea thieves to step forward. My red, burning face screamed out it was me but I got away with it. Ah! Those were the days!
I got into gardening when I dismantled a concrete chicken shed and planted a honeysuckle, pyracantha and jasmine and.......they grew!!! I was,hooked.
